Anne Arundel County Police say a 17-year-old from Pasadena was arrested and charged with assault Wednesday after police say he cut another student with a small knife at Glen Burnie High School. Police say in a release that a fight broke out at 1:15 in the afternoon Wednesday. The targetted minor suffered a minor injury, and the student who allegedly did the stabbing was arrested by a school resource officer and charged. Cpl. Chris Anderson, a police spokesperson, said the student was charged with first-degree assault.
In a letter sent home to families, Principal Scott McGuire said the students got into a fight in a hallway shortly after a class change. Staff intervened to break up the fight, he said. No other students were involved.
